Whatever the reason, if you're not planning on watching the Super Bowl this Sunday, here are some great alternatives:
- Chicago Reed Quartet
Oboist Tim Sawyier, clarinetist Cory Tiffin, saxophonist Masahito Sugihara, and bassoonist Jason Carlson play a sweet program featuring music by Prokofiev, Bartók, Chopin, Ligeti, Gershwin, Ravel, and others. Great music, great musicians, and it only costs $4.
3:00 p.m., Southport Performing Arts Conservatory & Entertainment, 3433-35 W Peterson, $4
- Music of the Baroque plays Mozart's "Requiem"
Full disclosure: Sunday's performance in Evanston is sold out., but there are still a few tickets left to Friday's performance at Harris Theater. Act fast and see this rarely-performed final work by the great composer. His Symphony No. 29 is also on the program.
Friday at 7:30 p.m., Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph, $30-$75; Sunday at 7:30 p.m., First United Methodist Church, 516 Church, Evanston, sold out
